Richard Caswell to Alexander Martin (April 11, 1787)

April 11, 1787.
Mr. Speight thinks the allowance not sufficient as 'tis probable the Convention may sit longer than we at first apprehended & as we are to acc't he thinks with me, that 'tis best to draw one months further allowance,1 least we should be stinted as he was at Congress & obliged to run in debt. I have therefore enclosed you a Warrant for one months further allowance & as I presume you will not set out as soon as you mentioned you may have time to collect it.
[Footnotes as included or written by Farrand]
  • 1 Allowance for three months had been previously granted.
